This advanced performance is also coupled with a new look, with the color black dominating the new styling of the radiator shrouds and seat. But, looks are not everything and a major focus was also placed on rider comfort with a re-designed single seat that improves both rider and passenger comfort during every day use.

The BRUTALE project continues to remain faithful to the original objectives, MV wanted to build the most compact and light weight naked coupled with a superbike chassis together with raw engine performance that would enamor even the most demanding motorcyclist.

BACK TO BACK CHALLENGE!

2012 MV Agusta Brutale 1090R vs 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO.

Will the MV Agusta Brutale 1090R win over the Ducati Monster 1100 EVO (voted 67% awesome last week)?

Last week people didn't like the 1100 EVO's 100hp, will the 144.2hp of the Brutale be enough?

This will be a good one... get in on it now.

I voted: AWESOME again...but more for the styling than the power...I still prefer the low end torque of the twin engines, but this thing is sexy...

I need to change the headlight on my bike to something along this line...then I will have the ultimate bike...IMO

But this MV is quite nice to look at, especially in Black!!

Later.

Better looking than the Monster, but I'd still rather have the Duc. I prefer the power (actually, the torque) characteristics of a twin.

Awesome! This (actually the 910 Brutale) was one of the bikes I considered when I got my Hypermotard. Not only does it look awesome, its exhaust note is one of the most intoxicating you will ever hear from a motorcycle. :kicking:

I kinda like this one. Horsepower seems more than adequate. I'm not much for the naked bike look but it's not bad looking. Cool.

jeesh guys i dont know, it's probably a little sluggish up top. :wink:

It really needs a Mr.Turbo kit cuz i'm sure it won't power wheelie in fifth gear at 170mph with my lips bleeding and arm-sockets feeling like i am hanging onto the tail of an F-16 catapulting off the deck of the USS Soap-Dish. I think in Italy they sell a Super Mario kit for this thing.

We've all heard the stories: Even a Hayabusa needs a little Stage-2 engine massage to get me thinking "fast enough for the babysitter." I probably should be thinking V-Rod, eh. Harley sez they have Drag-Strip Performance and Sleek Street Style! (gosh!)

Luckily the Brutale has one thing going for it, the lack of fairing will help get that feeling for a Need for Speed when I am wearing my shorty helmet and t-shirt. - now THAT's pretty cool

This bike just HAS to be Awesome. I mean, seriously, take a good look at it and tell me it doesn't deserve to be Awesome +++. :mrgreen:

It's a bit expensive but the price reflects the brand; MV Agusta's are always going to be pricey. What a gorgeous looking ride and a four cylinder to boot... must be a genuine pleasure to ride. :D

I voted: AWESOME

Funny enough, I really meant to reply right away (I try not to be first to reply) as I am super-excited about this model myself, but then, I had so much new stuff to add to Total Motorcycle (like always) that I had to make time for it! :DOH:

Anyways, the next 15 mins is MV Agusta time. :cheers:

Let me start off by saying, there are motorcycle manufacturers, then there are the cream of the crop ones, like MV Agusta. In my eyes, MV Agusta is top tier and with the likes of Benelli and Bimota. Exotic, exquisite and expensive, but oh so incredibly cool they are beyond words.

The MV Agusta Brutale series is to a Ducati monster (it's head-to-head day), is to as Lamborghini is to Audi. Either you would gladly own and both have boat loads of prestige, but like the Lamborghini, the MV Agusta is, art on wheels taken to museum class levels.

Personally, I couldn't care if this bike had just 80hp rather than the 140+hp it has, nor if it costs a few thousand more. To me, it's awesome design goes beyond cost and raw data. A bike that when parked you have to force your eyes away from it to look where you are going.

That said, would I own one? To coin an 80's term "Like, Totally!"

Awesome + baby.
